As summer approaches, the anticipation of once again enjoying the beautiful outdoors is building. If you have a deck, or want to have one built, this is a great time to either make repairs to an existing structure, or get started on designing a new one.

Multiple options are available to the homeowner these days with regards to materials and cost. Decks can be constructed using hardwood, pressure treated wood, composite or plastic. A pergola or gazebo can be added for drama and to provide shade from the sun.

Many of our homeowners share project photos and cost when providing a review of their deck builder. To help you visualize what a deck looks like at various price points and regions, below are deck construction projects from four homeowners.

Toronto location – $8900

Builder: Just Deck It
